Re: Payton says Porter has a sprained MCL -Thank You Football gods

If I were Loomis, I would send Carney packing and sign McKenzie.

I read another post where someone thought we have no faith in Carney to kick near-50 yard FGs indoors, and I agree. I think you have to have a kicker you can trust to kick 50+ indoors and 45 outdoors.

McKenzie would be a decent fill-in until Porter gets back (hopefully for Carolina so he can work the rust off).


Remains to be seen if they make any moves. Loomis has earned my trust over the past couple of years, so I'm sure they won't bring in anyone if they don't feel that they would be an upgrade over what we have...

lol....unfortunately hes right

i cant see payton risking our secondary by putting arguably our best corner on IR

we just cant afford to lose another starter to IR....especially at a position that we thought we had fixed

McKenzie is D-U-N. Finished. Caput. Arivaderces.

Not sure how else to say it, but the mere mention of him needs to stop, because it is foolish. His knees are blown and no other team has even sniffed him.

This is great news. In the meantime bring Mike McKenzie in. I said it stockman311.

Re: Payton says Porter has a sprained MCL -Thank You Football gods

Everybody breathe and smile and say hallelujah. One way you can thank the Lord for his miraculous divine providence upon us, is by ceasing to be a smartass too fellow posters. You know who you are. ok. all good now. I aint mad at ya.

Ray, this is amazing news. I thought Porter was done. Porter thought Porter was done when he was riding the cart away. As I said somewhere else this morning, the guy deserves to be part of what ever we celebrate this year, and now it looks like it could happen.

4-6 weeks means, and I'm being optimistic, he could play in our last 3 games
plus the post season plus the Super Bowl. told you I was being optimistic. This wont be easy for him, as the training staff will keep him working out and in shape, but these guys are athletes, and what is he? 23? When you're 23, youre nothing but pee pee & vinegar. Hell, I was made by Rubbermaid. (except for some parts that were made by US Steel)

Get well & get ready, Tracy Porter, we're gonna really need you in a few weeks.
